An innovative guide to how great nonprofits achieve extraordinary social impact.What makes great nonprofits great?

 

Authors Crutchfield and McLeod Grant searched for the answer over several years, employing a rigorous research methodology which derived from books on for-profits like Built to Last.

 

They studied 12 nonprofits that have achieved extraordinary levels of impact—from Habitat for Humanity to the Heritage Foundation—and distilled six counterintuitive practices that these organizations use to change the world.

 

This book has lessons for all readers interested in creating significant social change, including nonprofit managers, donors and volunteers.
Leslie R. Crutchfield (Washington, D.C.) is a managing director of Ashoka and research grantee of the Aspen Institute. Heather McLeod Grant (Palo Alto, CA) is a nonprofit consultant and advisor to Duke University’s Center for the Advancement of Social Entrepreneurship and the Stanford Center for Social Innovation.

Among those countries, the United States ranks second on the scale of what economists call "relative child poverty" -- above Latvia, Bulgaria, Spain, Greece, and 29 others. Only Romania ranks higher, with 25.5 percent of its children living in poverty, compared with 23.1 percent in the U.S.

Mapping the Water and Sanitation Sector « Acumen Fund Blog

Mapping the Water and Sanitation Sector « Acumen Fund Blog | BoP Markets and access to basic services through toilets, cookstoves, solar panels and others | Scoop.it

At Acumen Fund, we look to invest in for-profit, social enterprises that are using market-based approaches to increase the affordability, access, and quality of water and sanitation to the poor in the developing world.

 

Our previous investments in the sector cover everything from an enterprise creating rural community water centers, to organizations using microfinance to increase access to sanitation.

 

When considering the entrepreneurial landscape in the water and sanitation sector overall, there is an enormous opportunity for social investment to make an impact; however, in order to be successful, social enterprises will require innovative approaches to tackle the serious challenges that remain.
